United States of America: hopeless insomnia
// A series of testimonials of “a typical day in prison” (9)*
Days go by, but just like outside prison, no two days in prison are ever the same. Prison conditions, the daily routine, possible visitors, medical treatment, food, or even access to the right of defence, vary greatly from one prison to another, and from one country to another. Prison Insider publishes testimonials from people who have been, or are currently in prison, and from people who are able to share their experience. This series of testimonials, “A typical day in prison”, puts the truth behind worldwide prison conditions into words.
Robert Lee Allen is imprisoned in the state of Michigan. He’s currently serving his fifth year of a 17 years-sentence. He tells Prison Insider how doing time is a daily battle.
